Kishwer's story

Basic Information:
Kishwer’s age is 35; she is married, living in Lahore, with her four children.

Financial Condition:
The financial position and condition of her family is very poor because her husband is a tailor by profession and he has owned a tailoring shop for many years. He could not get popularity among the people of his hometown, and this is the reason he has not enough customers on his list. Kishwer's children are very young and fully dependent upon their parents. She does not have any other source of income so she decided to start tailoring at home.
